    Special needs playground unveiled in Missoula

    MISSOULA - A not so ordinary playground will be ready for students when they return to class at Jefferson School next week.

    Members of the Rotary Club of Missoula Sunrise spent Tuesday working on the new playground, which they've funded and built.

    Jefferson is the only Missoula school that serves pre-school age students and is a peer model school with both special needs and non-special needs students.

    "This playground is accessible to kids that have disabilities and to kids that don't have disabilities. It's a very nice, well designed playground that was designed for those kinds of kids," explained club member Jim Clarke.

    He added that neighbors also helped with the project, and that area kids will be able to use the playground as well.
